Default Going to China. Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All. I am going to China in 3 weeks. I will be taking my blackberry storm with me. Because of the notorious Great Firewall of China I've been warned that I will not be able to access the sites I normally use for keepinmg in touch with family and friends. Is there a VPN I can use on the blackberry that will give me access to facebook, 4square and twitter? Any help/leads will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Yo bro,
No worries mate, your BB will work fine in China. All the apps in your BB will be accessible, including FB which is blocked/banned in China when accessed thru the internet. My BB works fine here

Just be wary of the autoroam and data charges, it will cause an arm and a leg if the data switched on 24/7.

Cheers. Enjoy your stay in China.

Check with Verizon and see if they have an applicable global plan for you
